URS Saturation Plug-in - Native – No Longer Available

Four different and distinct pre amplifiers digitally recreated
MFR# URSSATNATE

Product Description

The URS Saturation plug-in digitally recreates four different and distinct pre amplifiers each featuring: a different type of input stage saturation, even and odd ordered harmonics and soft clipping. The initial four Mic Pre Amplifiers models include:
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - Vintage Motorcity
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - German
  • Class A Discrete Pre Amplifier - British
  • Class A Discrete JFet Pre Amplifier - Modern
Try the different URS Saturation algorithms on all your favorite tracks - Drums, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards and Vocals. Hear the added warmth!

About each model:
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - MotorCity
    This algorithm digitally recreates the characteristics of a American tube mic pre amplifier that was popular in recording studios during the 1960's Motown era. Setting the drive control higher will add desired harmonics and tube soft clipping for a much more pronounced effect.
  • Class A Tube Mic Pre Amplifier - German
    This algorithm digitally recreates a German tube mic pre amplifier that was popular in European recording studios during early 1960's Beatles era. This type of tube pre amplifier is coveted for it's unique distortion, presence and authority in the treble ranges.
  • Class A Discrete Mic Pre Amplifier - British
    This algorithm digitally recreates the sought after classic British console all discrete mic pre saturation. This vintage amplifier was also used for the console's summing buss amplifiers. The added harmonics create the edge that is desired in both Rock and R&B music.
  • Class A Discrete JFet Mic Pre Amplifier - Modern
    This algorithm digitally recreates a modern JFet mic pre amplifier that comes the closest of any discrete device to tube saturation. Although similar to a tube it has its own unique harmonic structure and sound.
Mix blend Control
Allows you to blend the right amount of Saturation with your source material. No need to use an additional parallel track or Aux send to get blend effects. At the 100 % Wet setting the Mix Blend Control is disabled.

Adjustable output control
The URS Saturation plug-in features an adjustable output control after the Mix Blend control to balance the final effect with your insert chain.

Plasma Style VU metering
Allows you to view both the input and output signal. The phenomena of added harmonics, soft clipping and saturation is that it sounds louder even when the meters do not indicate changes in level.

High Res 64 bit Floating point "Double Precision" processing
The URS Saturation plug-in Hi Resolution 64-bit floating point "Double Precision" processing for increased clarity and headroom. Why mention this clarity for a plug-in that reduces saturation? Because, we designed the URS Saturation plug-in to reproduce Analog style saturation not Digital!

Native Support only
The URS Saturation plug-in currently supports Audio Units and VST for both Mac OSX. RTAS is currently supported with a VST to RTAS Wrapper only (not included).

TDM Support Planned
A TDM version is planned and will be released at a later time for an additional charge.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
